on basketball players to make sure they don't trash talk on the court. "fox & friends" starts now. >>steve: we're like carmelo anthony right now because people have microphones on us to hear what we're going to say. >>eric: make sure we don't do trash talking during the breaks. crazy. >>gretchen: i don't know if it's crazy or not. i guess we'll debate it. it all stems from carmelo anthony and kevin garnett when they got into it. maybe this is a way to try to curb some of that trash talking which is essential if you're a basketball player. i understand. it's an essential part of the game nobody talks about. >>eric: when you start calling somebody's wife a serial, you have crossed the line to say it. >>gretchen: let's talk about politics because there is no trash talking in politics. we all know that; right? back in september of 2006, i think it was, president obama -- and 2008, by the way -- when he was a senator, he talked a lot about the debt ceiling. remember, president bush was in office at the time, so senator obama would probably be against some of the things he was talking about, particu
hid for two and a half days. this morning you're going to want to hear his incredible story. >>steve: the president offering a way forward for america. it starts with a big left turn. >> we resolve a great nation must care for the vulnerable and protect its people from life's worst hazards and misfortunes. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >>steve: will america buy that we the people is now we the government. we will report. you will decide. >>brian: one guy i know does buy it. it looks like he'll have his media in the corner with the president of the united states. this network executive heard an article telling the president to pulverize and destroy republicans. you can go for their throats. we see him sunday with bob schieffer. we can't make this up. we'll review it only for you on "fox & friends." >>steve: it is the coldest day of the winter so far here in new york city. that is why it was a good decision to go indoors today. >>gretchen: you know even though i grew up in minnesota, i hate the cold weather. so let'
hill to hear what he has to say. we'll have a preview. >> steve: imagine being on the plane and the tires are out. and we'll tell you where and what happened coming up. >> brian: all right, this super bowl won't be about the quarterbacks, at least on the buildup, it will be about the coaches. they are brothers, who are just about a year apart. you do the math. talk about a family feud, they can have fun now, and go to battle in two weeks, because "fox & friends" starts right now. ♪ >> all right. live from new york city and washington d.c., it's inauguration day, 2013. four years ago when we were there, the temperature was in the mid 20's and we were on the roof of the museum and the wind chill was in the teens. right now in washington, it is cloudy and 35 degrees and it is much warmer as this president gets his second term on the -- as you can see from the pictures, on the west face of the capitol today at noon. >> gretchen: i think it's actually more chilly in this studio than it would be sitting outside there had we been there, but we are here to bring you all the cover
. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> steve: okay, that was a mitt romney ad saying they were going to build jeeps in china and it was labeled a lie. now it seems the joke is on them. chrysler announced 100,000 jeeps will be made in china next year just like mitt romney said. and joining us to weigh in on this is the president of founder of less government, good morning. >> good morning, sir, how are you? >> i'm doing okay, remember mitt romney from the great state of michigan and knows a lot about the car companies, he said you know, chrysler are going to wind up making jeeps in china the left wing media explode heed. >> yeah, ne did the lie of the year for "the washington post" and turned out to be factually accurate. i am reminded of dan rather, the documents were false, but accurate. this was exactly what, if you'll recall, paul ryan in his vice-presidential speech and in other places pointed out that barack obama gave a speech in janesville, wisconsin gm plant and said we're going to keep this open for a hundred years with the auto bailout and they closed it sta
giffords. on the anniversary, republican tucson city councilman steve kozachek, known in tucson as steve k., organized a gun guy-back that allowed residents to turn in the unwanted weapons to the police department, in exchange for safeway gift cards, the grocery store chain that was the scene of the giffords shooting. they collected and destroyed more than 200 guns in that drive. but not without opposition. the national rifle association, of course, opposed the buy back and told npr that it will work with the arizona state legislature to re-write the law in order to make it illegal to destroy firearms in buy-backs. and one republican state senator even held his own gun buy-back on the same day as steve k. instead of destroying the guns, he and other gun rights advocates added them to their collections. just days after, he wrote this. the arizona republican party is an idealogical outliar, i see nothing showing that it is inclined to move anything but further away from the values of this community. i will, therefore, be changing my party register to democrat. joining me now, the rather than
to steve. >> a beautiful sunrise here. a few high clouds. i know it's cold. man, it hurts. hurts. temperatures in the 20s. more 20s than yesterday. it doesn't happen if you are inland. it can help downslope, the offshore breeze will help the bay. frost and freeze warnings are out. those higher clouds coming down out of the north. northeast. so that's the direction the wind is coming from. that's what gives us a little bit of that high cloud cover. there's actually some warm temperatures up in alaska. there's more of this in arizona and nevada. yesterday, there was a lot more of a breeze. when the wind is calm, the temperature drops down. that's what you are getting. fairfield, 26. brentwood, 29. concord, 29. walnut creek, 28. livermore/pleasanton, upper 20s. santa rosa, 28. napa, 28. 38 half moon bay. not far away i've seen 32. redwood city says 35. san jose, 33. campbell, santa clara, upper 20s. woodside also upper 20s and there is a bunch in the mountains. you need more cloud cover and kind of a west wind. we're not getting that. it will stay cold but that helps areas around oa
good and in the south bay there are no accidents or stalls. 5:06 let's go to steve. >>> well i just tweeted this out, anchorage alaska is 31, burbank is 34 with an east wind at 22 miles per hour so it is warmer in anchorage than many locations down here. i think i saw scottsdale was 25. cold patchy frost, freeze warn being are out and it is going to be here. maybe early the end of the month and until then, very cold mornings and we will start to see this cold air modified. it helps coast and bay and there is a 32 in anchorage and it looks like they will park it over the west coast. 20 for fairfield. i know it is closer to napa and menlo park. we have lost that breeze and there is a little component of an east shore breeze. it is definitely dry. temperatures 50s for some, low mid-and i don't want to say upper yet. it is getting close for oakland and 52 livermore and it is a complete flip flop from six months ago. temperatures are starting to come up coast and bay and we will hold that right into the weekend. >>> steve let go to a car parked near a college campus. tara moriarty just a
we're back with the a-team, monica, your thoughts. >> yes, i just want to remind steve that the president was not too biz to personally hand select beyonce to sing national anthem at the inaugural. >> it is beyonce after all, not your 8 average citizens it is beyonce. >> yes, the -- >> steve said that with a certain amount of emotion. >> i think that they found the only 8 citizens who have benefitted by president obama. lou: you are not on the top, i can assure you that. speaking on the news, bob shafer talking about the president's comments, as he announced his proposal, look how he compares president obama taking on gun owners. >> surely, fines osama bin laden surely passing civil rights legislation, as lyndon johnson did, and surely defeating nazis, waa much more form it able task than taking on the gun lobby. this is a turning point in this country. and the president, is going to have to to do more than just make a speech about it, this is one of the best speeches i heard him deliver. but it will take more than that from the white house, he will have to get his han
heard and what we will hear tomorrow. steve hayes senior writer, juan williams fox news political analysts and charles krauthammer syndicated columnist. steve to you, this is a different environment, a different time, they needed a little bit of money. they opened it to corporate donations. you heard the president going there to say thank you for the money. >> yeah he didn't need to be re-elected this time. they are having a good time tonight. they are joking with each other and the crowd. there were moments joe biden was speaking he had the crowd fired up when he said president obama is just getting started. he repeated himself twice he is just getting started. he laid out policy agenda guns immigration and rebooting the economy and barack obama came on and was in a joef yell mood. >> for all of the talk we had during the campaign ofment o prt obama's ability to raise money it would be a million dollar campaign and the talk mitt romney had more corporate donors it would be a wash in cash. the president had no trouble raising enough money to get himself re-elected it is thanks in
. >> let's go to steve. >>> a little change here, a long stretch of dry weather is about to end tomorrow. mostly sunny. but already some noticeable changes on parts of the coast where it is a good, 10, 15 degrees cooler than it was at this time yesterday. a little change in our wind direction. there's still a slight component of an offshore breeze. but two system, one to the north, one to the southwest will begin to slowly work their way in here especially late tonight and tomorrow. the system, though, today, mostly sunny here in the morning and then a few high clouds later on. it's really not aliving until tomorrow. it's the -- arriving until tomorrow. it looks to be a stretch of dry weather. mostly sunny, hazy, clouds, cooler, light rain, maybe moderate rain comes in tomorrow especially around noon into the afternoon. 48. 44 half moon bay. yesterday at this time 54. so a big difference there. still low 30s holding on. not the 20s except for fairfield. eastern day temperatures have been -- each day temperatures have been coming up. coast and bay have been mild to warm. our computer mode
: temperatures dropped dramatically, about 50% overnight in washington. our own steve centanni is live at the washington national cathedral. steve tell us, you're out there in the cold, buddy. tell us how it is going there and what we expect inside where you would like to be. >> that would be nice. a very cold morning here at washington's national cathedral. about 20 degrees out here. we expect the president and the vice president at 10:30, for this service which is a tradition to wrap up inaugural events here in washington. we, it is an interfaith service and a lot of dignitaries will be here. now of course the national cathedral, a landmark in the nation's capitol. this event goes all the way back to george washington and we'll be repeated today. just sort of cap off the inaugural events that have been going on for the past several days here in washington. now, this cathedral of course was damaged in 2011. suffered severe damage. could take about 10 years to get it back again. it will cost millions of dollars to do that. so that service getting underway at 10:30 this morning. we'll k
. and to underscore that point, which i think does get to what steve said a little earlier, and that is, obviously -- you can have a discussion, and you can have a set of of policies, but we're going to be as good as our national congress setting a floor with legislation. and if california wands to exceed it for whatever or reason, they'll go farther. but the national discussion, and i think the it's one of the priorities in the discussion tomorrow and i think you can get bipartisanship on it. when the background checks were set up because of of what happens at gun shows and everything else, 40% of the guns that are traded or bought are not covered with any background five-day waiting period. that's not a loophole, that's an exemption. and that has to be dealt with so you create a national floor that's comprehensive so what happens in indiana doesn't flood the city of chicago, cook county. and it's essential to underscore that point. >> if i could, it needs to be a national be fix, and it has to be federal preemption because the patchwork of states or cities working by themselves is not effective.
>> steve: you keep sending pictures of your furry friends, so we're going to show you when it's not so furry, it's fifi the iguana. look at that. a fan of "fox & friends." >> gretchen: oh, my gosh. >> steve: very nice. keep them coming. >> gretchen: dr. ian will stick around for the after the show show. around congress and enact new gun laws with executive order. vice president biden telling house democrats at least 19 of those actions are being prepped and will be implemented whether congress likes it are not. leads to the question, what are they. i'm bill hemmer. happy tuesday on america's news room. martha: i'm martha maccallum. these orders are more aggressive of current laws which a lot of people said is really the first place to start, or, they will try to get the centers for disease control to do some national research on firearms. bill: on the other side many argue, democrats and republican lawmakers, you need to look at more than just guns. >> this is a very important constitutional right and we are very dedicated to protecting the second amendment from that standpoin
in the panel. steve hayes for the "weekly standard." juan williams, columnist with the hill. syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. okay, steve. we saw earlier an amendment offered by south carolina's mick mulvaney to pay for $17 billion in disaster relief was shut down. now there is another effort to scale back the overall packag package. what about this debate and how it's playing out? >> it's a good debate. what we saw with the mulvane amendment was telling. republicans were voting 2 to 1 in favor of the amendment which would have taken the $17 billion and offset it by making $1.6% cut to discretionary spending across the board. that is a perfectly reasonablebe proposal. most republicans voting for it. what is discouraging you got so little real attention from democrats and it was criticized so heavily in such, i think a demagogic manner by some other republicans. you had hal rogers,be chairman of the house appropriations committee suggest that the cuts, 1.6% of discretionary spending, those cuts would be devastating slash and burn cu cuts. that is false. it wouldn't be. we can ha
steve handlesman is live at the white house with the very latest this evening. and they're at the second ball, mrs. obama looking beautiful in a jason wu gown. >> reporter: stealing the attention again from the president. she is much beloved here in washington on both side of the political aisle. president obama's main theme on this second inaugural day was national unity since there's an awful lot that we can get done if americans get together. at the president's second swearing in by supreme court chief justice john roberts, hundreds of thousands jammed the national mall. president obama had his hand on bibles use d by president lincon and martin luther king. >> so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> we, the people -- >> reporter: in his inaugural address president obama echoed themes sounded by lincoln and king. >> while freedom is a gift from god, it must be secured by his people here on earth. >> reporter: the president urged action on the deficit and global warming and keeping kids safe. >> we reject the belief america must choose between caring for the generation th
millionaires. it is the belief that you owe backe to a country that has helped to make you what you are. steve jobs -- we had a tough column in the last issue. it was tough not about apple labor practices in china. here you had a man of great wealth was talking about cutting taxes and never really gave of his philanthropic wealth. poor bill gates, he gets nailed for being so square. you can disagree with some things. but he is out there. >> all of them out there now came a little late to the party. they got very rich, very young. i wanted to leave some time for audience questions. i have not read more questions from the audience because they are also good. usually it is the guy with the aluminum hat on getting cia messages. [laughter] not really. if you want to line up, we have a few more minutes at the microphones. we will take a few questions. please make sure that you make them questions. >> i have been interested in americorps and other related programs. from what i can tell, you do not support it or talk about it very much. the tea party is advocating limiting national service. president
quick here. if you're a fan of comedy, you have to love steve harvey. a great new talk show on doing well and he just had a show celebrating his 56th birthday. as part of that show, they had a man call in who was instrumental in his early career when he was -- 30 years ago as a struggling carpet cleaner in florida. this guy and his wife gave him the money to launch steve's career. take a look at what happened when the guy called in to steve's show. >> i was 26 years old, man. i was struggling. i didn't have nothing, and these people owned a furniture store, and man, i ran up a bill like $11,000 just trying to travel and make it. and they helped me out. hey, man, i got money now, rich. >> everyone starts somewhere and never forget the people that helped get you where you are. really cool to see that. >> the good people never forget where they came from. >> amen. >>> britney spears, you know she and jason broke up last week and she broke up with the "x factor" and now has a huge deal in las vegas. well, she was seen without her engagement ring on monday, replacing that $90,000 ring wit
is there. >> wall street is it watching sac capital, steve cohen, one of the largest hedge fund managers out there, the company and he reportedly disclosed that the firm received a wells notice from the sec which means it could be sued for securities laws violations. is that true? >> i -- >> can you comment? >> i will not comment on any investigation but as you bring up insider trading i will note over 160 cases in the last three years. nearly $900 million in illegal gains or losses avoided we have charged. so another area we have been extremely vigorous and active. >> how many insider trading cases are currently in the pipeline? are there dozens more you're looking into, is that fair to say? >> i don't want to put a number on it and remains a high priority and active area. >> what about in high speed trading, high frequency trading? the sec is concerned about that. are you looking into any potential securities law violations with high speed trading or high frequency trading? >> look, we're looking at a sort of number of actors and transactions in the market structure case. we brought ca
to the idea of rolling out a number of executive actions, including a representative steve stockman who has said this is potentially impeachable, so this is a highly debatable issue. it's a heated issue here in washington. a lot of people are going to be watching that closely, but it's going to be a big roll-out, andrea, and certainly a big part of president obama's second term agenda. >> jay carney has said it's going to be closer to the noon hour, so we're fwrafl for that. it will at least precede our program. all politics being local as tip o'neil would say. ruth, let's talk about the president's news conference yesterday because he said i am want negotiating. i'm not going to give house republicans anything for raising the debt ceiling. it's on them. if they want to take the heat for veterans benefits and social security benefits not getting to people, what game of chicken are we playing here? >> really high stakes game of chicken is what we're playing here. i had the occasion of going back and reading actually the president's first news conference after he became president, and he is t
the tone in washington. unfortunately, d.c. is still tone deaf. >> i'm steve kornacki. we are taking you through our favorite inauguration moments today and since the footage of 1864 is a bit grainy, i go with something slightly more contemporary. >> i'm krystal ball, this is another historic event. what president's past, present and future can learn from it. >>> t-minus two days until president obama makes history again. on sunday, he'll be sworn in for a second term in the highest office in the land. but did you know obama will become the second president ever to take the oath of office four times? yeah. that's right. steve kornacki told me that. in 2009, he took it twice after chief justice roberts botched it the first time. good job, john. the president will again the lay hand on the bible, january 20th required by the constitution but since it's a sunday, the parades, balls and public swearing in, the fourth oath, pushed until monday the mlk holiday. such poetic justice, that. don't expect the record turnout of 2009. a new poll shows fewer americans like president obama right now an
challenges. >> steve. >> is pretty hurt to know what will stand up to the supreme court and what won't. we just have a ruling from the seventh circuit court of appeals in chicago at the element cannot conceal to carry some constitutional under the supreme court's second amendment. the federal appeals court in new york took exactly the opposite view. if you go back and read the supreme court decisions, they suggest there's a fair amount of latitude for the democratic government to regulate guns, but they also put a definite boundary on how far those can go. an outright ban on handguns like in chicago before, like washington d.c. hackers to fraud. that is a second amendment right goes too far to extend the right of self-defense that the supreme court found to emulate the home is another question entirely. i think ultimately probably what happens in congress is not going to be greatly affect getting greatly constrained by what the supreme court is going to allow. the court on things like regulation of a particular type of guns, waiting periods, background checks and things like that will prob
fingers, because when the government comes to my door, i've got to fight back. a very smart guy, steve chapman, said that's the exception. i spent a lot of time out there. there are a lot of people who believe that, and we've got to get beyond that discussion as well. and other nra members who are in the sporting weapons business, who are there because they like to get access to the information about hunting and the wide use of weapons, they've got to speak up. >> reverend al, i go back to the video games or movies or violence that's in the media, there is such a terrible response from those who want to defend the freedom of those things, that you can't even have a conversation. >> no -- >> it's obvious. >> i think that the abuse of the second amendment cannot be met with the abuse of the first amendment. >> right. >> i think -- >> you've talked about this, by the way. >> i've talked about it. i've even challenged rappers and artists and record companies. because you may think you have the right to say it. i have the right to oppose it. and i think the public has a right to say we're g
county supervisor steve kinsey says the idea is too h harsh. >> i think a moratoriums are the wrong way to go. we need to educate and incentivize, be partners with landowners and we're doing that. >> it restoration efforts could cost more than a billion dollars. state leaders estimate small steps will go a long way. >> i think along our north coast it's possible to bring them back within a generation. >> jeff ranieri in the weather center, it is sure chilly outside. >> we've been talking about this three and four days. one of the colder days, daytime highs in parts of the east bay not getting out of the 40s. look at this. 49 for your daytime high in livermore. 45 in los gatos. up to 53 and 55 in santa rosa. what does it look like? from the 40s back into the tri-valley, 36 in napa. reading in the low 40s but that particular one in the mid-30s, 45 currently in downtown san jose. let's get you outside to our live sky camera network on this very brisk monday evening and you can see visibility is pretty much unlimited. i don't remember the last time i saw the sky camera sparkle like that. le
representative steve stockman, responding to the president's press conference. >> if he thinks these bills are good, his law is good, he should go through congress. he's not a king. reminds me of saddam hussein when he used kids. >> jennifer: the question, which is coming out of all of this is whether the president should fight for rational policy that he knows will not pass an irrational house of representatives. and the answer to that question is really in a painting by grace mcdonnell, a 6-year-old sandy hook victim whose dad gave the president a piece of her artwork >> obama: i think about grace. i think about the life that she lived. and the life that lay ahead of her. and most of all, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. >> jennifer: for grace, this fight is worth waging. and for her this fight may even be worth losing in the short term anyway. because while the president might be able to squeak out an unsatisfying victory a small and ugly bill riddled with loopholes and signifying nothing, perhaps in this instance, the better c
amount of joining us now, charles krauthammer. and justin powers and steve hayes. charles? >> obama has showed in his first term that he thinks large. he sees himself as a historical president who will change the united states. he actually said, in the way that reagan was historically... important president in a way that a clinton or a nixon was not. he sees himself in that mode. he has accomplished in the first term something revolutionary, with national health care, that liberals have dreamed of for a hundred years and succeeded in increasing the tax scplefl spending level in a country that was unprecedented. so i think he wants to go very large in the second term, in that -- i think we he will try to do it on immigration. initially, he will try on guns. but i think he wants to push us towards a european state -- more entitlementsments and raise the revenue so we become much more like a european social democratic state. he might have some success. >> i think a lot of liberals would be thrilled if that was the case. you hear this a lot, that he is going to be this transformational pers

authority as president. >> and here is the level headed and bipartisan response. representative steve stockman is threatening to impeach the president of the united states if there is any new gun control laws out there. his official website says "come and take it," meaning his guns. senator rand paul made the same threat. >> but one that wants to infringe on the second amendment we will fight tooth and nail. and i promise you, there will be no rock left unturned used to stop him from usurping the constitution. >> these people are freaking out about a law already passed. congress approved the assault weapons in 1994. the world did not come to an end, and the second amendment is still alive and survived through it all. here we are exactly one month since the latest mass shooting, 20 young children dead, six staffers and adults are gone. and congressling members are already saying no to meaningful change. they predict that there just aren't enough votes for anything. today for the first time, the parents of those 6, 7, and 8-year-old kids spoke publicly about what they want congress to d
any old party. >> this is a big party. woodruff: matea, what about, you know, we just heard from steve saying it's all about access. we're not really paying attention to the criticism. but are they troubled abou by te fact that this was the president who came into office saying he would do things differently. >> you have to judge them on what they do. it's clear from our reporting that campaign finance reform is not going to be an immediate part of the president's agenda right now. if this was something that was really troubling them i think they probably would be taking action on that front. i think they knew they were going to get criticized for the reversal specifically on corporate donations. but in a lot of ways this president has had to compromise when it comes to money and politics. on several different occasions, he endorsed a super pac that advocated on his behalf in the election after criticizing such groups. i think this is another example like that. >> woodruff: last question. for anybody who is watch ing who is trying to decide whether they should come to the inaugural or
? texas republican steve stockman has threatened impeachment in the event the president uses the executive actions to limit gun- control. he said to attack the president's actions are not just an attack on the constitution and a violation of his sworn the oath of office, they are a direct attack on americans that placed all of us in danger." >> you know, still reviewing all of those 19 steps, but it was positive to see the administration is looking at every option they can, what they can do with and without legislation to help reduce the impact and the toll of gun violence in this country. i think the president has been serious about this. a large number proposals go a long way. i think he realizes there are many ways to tackle a problem, not just one thing we can do that is going to save everybody's life. he understands there are many steps we can take. i think it speaks to the seriousness of the president on this issue and is encouraging -- like i said, will help get more people involved when we have it from the leadership of this country. >> and also the possibility of impeachment. expl
we're at this breaking point. >> clinton era conspiracy they'rist and texas republican steve stockman first loaded impeachment earlier this week saying "if the president is allowed to suspend constitutional rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively creased to exist." dana milbank writes in the washington post that stockman was once considered too radical for congress, which is why he only served one term in the mid 1990s, but he is not too crazy for this congress. as milbank notes, "what's frightening is that stockman no longer sounds like an outliar." with reactionary statements that seem at times unhinged from reality, congressman stockman fits in just fine. >> our founding fathers were very concerned about having a separation of powers. they didn't want to let the president become a king. >> i'm afraud that president obama may have this king complex sort of developing, and we're going to make sure it doesn't happen. >> maria theresa, it's like, you know, i feel like i -- we played a little bit of sound from rachel maddow last night, my distinguished collea
can set it on fire. steve lipsky said -- a u.s. soldier accused of massacring 16 afghan civilians in march has been ordered to undergo a sanity review before his lawyers can wage a defense based on his mental health. staff sergeant robert bales deferred entering a plea thursday on charges that could carry the death penalty. he is accused of killing nine children and seven adults during a nighttime attack on two villages in kandahar province. lawyers say bales, who served four tours in iraq and afghanistan, may have suffered a traumatic brain injury and ptsd. attorney john henry browne discussed the mental state of john bales -- robert bales. >> he is a strong person but i think he would agree with what i said, he feels abandoned by the army. >> a u.s. marine is facing a likely demotion in rank after pleading guilty to urinating on the corpse of a man in afghanistan. staff sergeant edward deptola was charged after video emerged in july 2011 showing u.s. soldiers urinating on dead afghans. deptola admitted he failed to supervise other marines, saying -- "i was in a position to stop
common ground. steve king tweeted this, awesome and shockingly liberal address. an epic realignment. so some people said not at all, other people said what i just read. what's your take? >> well, you know, the president won the election so he's certainly entitled to pursue his agenda. i thought it would have been more effective though if he had spoken more in thematic terms. by being as precise as he was is laying out a liberal agenda which is what's usually done in a state of the union. in going back to ronald regan's address, government is not the problem. those are general statements. i thought the way he got specific yesterday made it more of a, again, almost campaign type of address. he's an excellent speaker. even how he was distinguishing the issues, implying that democrats care more about disabled kids than republicans do. he's not going to turn his back on the sick elderly. no one wants to do any of those things. i thought he could have found some way to be more constructive. maybe he felt that the time for that is gone, but, you know, he's got a state of the union speech comin
